How to find the best internet provider in your area

Enter your zip code above to see a comparison of the best internet providers available near you. Fiber providers are usually the best internet providers if they’re available in your area. So, once you know what all your options are, look for fiber internet providers first.

Best fiber internet providers

Fiber is the best internet connection, offering equal upload and download speeds that provide more than enough speed for everyone—up to 10,000 Mbps, in fact. However, fiber internet availability is currently limited to cities and more densely populated areas.

If fiber internet isn’t available, cable internet is your next best option.

 Best cable internet providers

Cable internet uses existing cable TV lines, so there’s a high probability it’s already available in your neighborhood. Its highest download speed is 1,200 Mbps, but cable internet can’t match the faster upload speeds that come with fiber internet.

If fiber or cable internet isn’t available in your area, DSL is your next best landline option.

Best DSL internet providers

DSL internet is the slowest type of wired internet connection. It may occasionally reach speeds of up to 140 Mbps, but in many areas DSL may struggle to reach broadband speeds of 25 Mbps. That makes DSL faster than dial-up and more reliable than satellite internet, but much slower than most cable and fiber internet plans. It’s commonly available in rural areas as well as more densely populated areas. There’s a good chance DSL internet is available in your neighborhood.

If there’s no DSL, cable, or fiber internet in your area, wireless internet is likely your only option.

Best rural internet providers

4G LTE home internet is a wireless home internet alternative if you live within cell range. If not, Viasat and HughesNet offer nationwide internet coverage with satellite internet.

Not every internet provider will offer home internet in your area. Enter your zip code below to see which internet providers and internet plans are available to you.

The best internet providers at a glance

Many internet providers deliver good service with wide availability across the country. Most likely, only one or two of these providers are available where you live, but this list of national providers is a great place to start your search.

Which internet providers are available where you live?

Entering your zip code to access our database of over 1,600 internet providers will give you the best idea of which internet providers are available where you live.

Generally, cable internet providers don’t overlap in coverage, no matter where you look. DSL internet is widely available—even in rural areas—but it doesn’t offer much speed. Fiber internet is mainly available in densely populated areas. Satellite internet is available everywhere, but we don’t recommend it unless it’s your only option.

Are you moving to a new city? You’ll need to get the specific zip code for where you plan to live to see which internet providers are available there. Atlanta, for example, has nearly 100 zip codes—six in the neighborhood of Buckhead alone. Using the correct zip code for your home will give you the most accurate internet provider results.

What is the fastest available internet in my area?

The fastest accessible internet service in your area depends on where you live. Fiber internet from providers like Google Fiber, CenturyLink, AT&T, and Verizon is the fastest and best internet connection if it’s available in your area.

More fiber plans are now available at speeds up to 10,000 Mbps, although most commonly top out at 1,000 Mbps, which is more than enough speed for the vast majority of households. Fiber internet also supports symmetrical upload and download speeds—great for remote workers who need to upload large files to the corporate server, Twitch livestreamers, or households where multiple people are on video conferences at the same time.

Cable internet from providers like Xfinity, Sparklight, and Spectrum is the most widespread fast connection type. Cable internet plans reach up to 1,200 Mbps, but you may see speeds limited to only 200–500 Mbps in some areas. However, cable internet speeds are expected to reach 10,000 Mbps in the coming years.

DSL is essentially a step up from dial-up, offering internet speeds up to 140 Mbps. It’s the ideal connection if you need only the baseline broadband speed (and if the price is cheap), or if fiber and cable internet aren’t available where you live.

Satellite internet can reach speeds up to 100 Mbps, but it’s expensive and offers low data caps. But satellite internet might be your fastest option if you live in a rural area.

Types of nationwide internet service providers


A digital subscriber line (DSL) connection delivers internet over your home phone line, but it won’t tie it up like dial-up. Its maximum speed is just 140 Mbps—faster than dial-up but slower than most cable and fiber plans.


  • More reliable than wireless internet
  • Widely available service


  • Limited upload and download speeds
  • Less reliable than fiber and cable


Cable internet uses the same coaxial cable lines that deliver cable television, making it easy to bundle with TV. It’s capable of delivering speeds up to 1,200 Mbps and is available in most neighborhoods.


  • Ultrafast download speeds
  • Phenomenal upload speeds


  • Limited upload and download speeds
  • Less reliable than fiber and cable


Fiber internet sends LED or laser pulses through glass fibers that translate into data. Fiber is the best internet on the market today, capable of speeds up to 10,000 Mbps But its availability remains limited because fiber-to-the-home requires a new infrastructure in your neighborhood versus using existing cable and telephone lines.


  • Widely available, even in rural areas
  • Good customer service


  • Limited upload and download speeds
  • Less reliable than fiber and cable


Satellite internet uses transmitters orbiting Earth to beam internet to subscriber dishes on the ground. It’s capable of decent speeds and is widely available, making it a great option for rural areas. The only downside is the long transmission distance, resulting in slower speeds and more lag.


  • Widely available, even in rural areas
  • Good customer service


  • Unavoidable lag
  • Data restrictions

5G Home Internet

5G internet uses cellular networks and fixed wireless connections to give you fast speeds at a good price. It’s relatively new, so availability is limited for now. Most providers with 5G internet services give you a break on extra fees, including unlimited data and a router at no extra cost.


  • Fast speeds
  • Affordable prices


  • Extremely limited availability
  • Unpredictable speeds

4G Home Internet

Like 5G, 4G LTE internet uses a fixed wireless connection over a cellular network to give you decent speeds. It works over 4G networks, so it’s not as fast as 5G but more widely available. Some 4G providers specifically serve rural users and digital nomads, providing internet over travel routers that you can install anywhere. Prices can be steep, but you can also find affordable deals with unlimited data and breaks on extra costs.


  • Unlimited data options
  • Availability in rural areas


  • High prices
  • Unpredictable speeds

Fixed wireless

Fixed wireless operates over radio waves, sending a wireless signal directly to an antenna set up in your home. This relatively obscure technology is mostly popular in rural areas where you have few other options. It’s also the backbone of 5G home internet.


  • Great alternative to satellite
  • Cutting-edge technology


  • Limited availability
  • Unfamiliar technology
